Snitterfield Reservoir - 29.08.11

No brainer really, 5 mins from my house and after another blank at Wasperton earlier in the week, and being frustrated by streamer weed I decided that I wanted to catch some fish. 6.30am till about 10.00am more or less a bite every chuck. Waggler, maggot and about a rod length out manged a nice variety of fish. Perch, Roach, Crucian Carp and Skimmer Bream. Biggest roach was well over a pound, a lovely fish. Must have missed 50% of the bites too.

Lovely setting too, I must spend more time here, some quality fish and such a huge variety.

Wasperton - 18.08.11

For those of you with the Leamington Anglers Association Book, you will know this swim very well.

fished it from 8.00pm till 10.00pm and blanked, feeder with pellet and halibut groundbait mix and a big halibut pellet on the hook. Had quite a few sharp chub pulls but sadly no 4ft twitches, I've caught Barbel from here before but River painfully low at the moment and was plagued with weed coming downstream wrapping round the line. Might give Snitterfield Reservoir a go next and wait for some decent rain.

Wasperton - 11.08.11

I said I would go to another river again after I blanked but Wasperton is the closest river stretch to me ( 10 mins ) and I set out far later than I wanted and only had a couple hours of fishing.

Anyway fished downstream of the propeller peg, fished one rod with halibut pellet and had a nice bream just under 8lb last knockings. Felt a bit sorry for it really, didn't put up much of a fight, like he'd given up.

Listen to the watch.......04.08.11

Went to Wasperton for a couple of hours, should of looked and listened, no fish showing when I started fishing and it stayed like that when I left, even after some rain earlier on didn't make a fat lot of difference, a royal blank. Another river next time then.
